A painful loss

A flyer at Northfield's Olympus Athletic Club caught my attention:  It showed a picture of Cheyenne Mariah Mendoza and gave the dates 01/01/94 to 01/01/06.

I read that Cheyenne’s family was in a car accident and that Cheyenne and her brother were injured. Cheyenne's brother Dakota survived the accident and is in need of care but Cheyenne’s injuries were fatal.  I read on to learn that the father held his daughter during the last few minutes.  What a terrible tragedy.  I can only imagine how horrible it must have been.  It was even Cheyenne’s birthday. 

We can help this family by attending a Saturday, February 25th, dinner and dance at the Eagle's Club.  Dinner's from 5:30 to 7:30 pm and there’ll be spaghetti. A silent auction will be held from 5:30 to 8:00 pm, and a DJ will play from 8:00 to midnight.  Tickets can be purchased at the Eagle’s Club, the liquor store, or at the door.  If you cannot go but wish to donate:  A Mendoza family benefit fund has been set up at Northfield’s First National Bank.
